Hazardous location electrical equipment testing is one of FM Approvals' largest product categories. To help ensure that electrical equipment won't cause a fire or explosion in an area where flammable or combustible materials (such as gases, vapors, dusts, or fibers) are present, it must be designed using various methods of protection.
Our engineers have a solid background in relevant, permitted protection techniques, national and international standards, and area classification associated with hazardous locations.
As an Approvals Engineer you will be responsible for:
• Approximately 10% international and domestic travel for on-site testing.
• Familiarity with third party product certification and industry standards such as FM Approvals, IEC and CSA International is desirable.
